    Laptop cooling

    While doing a visual check of my laptop I got recently,I noticed that the vents for the fan cooler are totally sealed !

    There is a circle there,for what seems to be air intake but the slits are all totally covered. Is a Toshiba C655 S5132

    I have the same Toshiba and was wondering about cooling too. I have noticed it gets quite hot after a while. Did you find out if it's a problem?

    It seems that it was a factory screw up.I am considering cutting out the whole circle,after all it can't be seen unless you go look for it.

    have been looking around for a laptop cooler that would accommodate a 17.3 AW17R3 and realized I have not seen a topic on this in some time.
    I have noticed that many laptop coolers they things like (fits 15" - 17") however when it comes to the 17" it barely makes it. In many of those cases our 17.3" laptop hangs off the sides way too much.

    So please post information on suggested laptop coolers and coolers that are not suggested.

    Edit: The HAVIT HV-F2056 is a solid inexpensive laptop but its too small for the 17R3 and it seems to slide off.
    Rubber feet would either need to be added to the laptop or the top of the cooler. So this one is going back!
    I'm now going to try the HV-F2063
